Sarah Palin, the Winner by a Wink
Obama: Like this, then?
Axelrod: No, no. It looks like someone kicked sand in your eye. You can't appear weak.
Obama: OK, watch me now.
Axelrod: Still wrong. It's like your contact got stuck in your eyelid.
Obama: Wait, wait a minute. I've been studying the tapes. She did it almost exactly that way.
Axelrod: No, she didn't. And you gotta remember to smile when you do it. Smile!
Obama: OK, OK, OK. Let me try it again. "We can't afford four more years of the same failed Bush policies." [He winks and smiles.] "John McCain will break into your elderly mother's house, steal her wallet, urinate on her front door, and kick her dog on his way out." [He winks and smiles.]
Obama: What now?
Obama: You're giving me that look.
Obama: OK, I guess we're done with that exercise. Now, should I wear a black dress? David? David?
